Pampanga showcases disaster preparedness

The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO) of Pampanga highlighted its emergency preparedness in responding to disaster.

The PDDRMO exhibited its capability and resourcefulness during the launch of the National Disaster Reduction and Management Festival inside SM City Pampanga with Pampanga Governor Dennis Pineda and local officials in attendance.

The event is part of the National Disaster Resilience Month (NDRM) observation.

This year’s theme is “Sambayanang Pilipino, Nagkakaisa tungo sa Katatagan at Maunlad na Kinabukasan,” highlighting “the unifying efforts of all sectors and communities toward sustainable development.”

Pineda said the province was committed to upholding standards in disaster response and continually upgrading and updating the province’s disaster response capabilities.

The governor also lauded the PDRRMO for continually ensuring that the province is ready for any disaster response.

PDRRMO officer Angelina Blanco led the presentation of the disaster management office’s response and the exhibition of the province’s disaster response capabilities.

The exhibit included the province’s logistical capabilities including ambulances, fire trucks, flotation devices, life vests, medical equipment among others.

The exhibit is currently on display at the SM City Pampanga event center.
